Pictured here is a young Jimmy Page appearing very "dazed and confused" probably from the lack of a "whole lotta lovin." I'm sure his parents experienced a "communication breakdown" plus years of "good times, bad times." It seems that some things are "what is and what sould never be."  Posted by Hello

I use to hold Zeppelin and Jimmy Page in high regard, until I started hearing rumors that Page lifted a lot of the Zep songs without giving anyone any credit. I mean, I know some of them are based on traditional blues songs..but those are usually noted. I heard that Stairway and Dazed and Confused were lifted from other sources and not credited. What do you think about those accusations?

BTW -- check out this music comic strip:

I think it's kind of sad that you would not hold him in high regard anymore for simply doing what many artists (not just musicians) have done throughout time. Sure some of his influences were quite obvious because they were almost -- almost being the key word here -- direct lifts, but does that make him and his band mates any less talented or influential? No. Sure they should have given credit at times -- but if you know anything about the band and it's members I think you'd know that they were a very rushed band that had no interest in legalities and unfortunately -- and naively -- ignored them because of that. I highly doubt they intended on making money directly off of others tunes or anything of the like; they were just playing what they loved and because of that I don't think there's any reason to literally lose respect for them.

Are you sure this photo is of page? It doesn't look like him. Where did it come from?
